Thank you NetGalley for giving me an ARC copy of the book in exchange for a fair review!
In Servant Mage, Fellion gets taken out of indentured servitude without much of a choice. She is forced to promise that she’ll help rescue some people from mines by using her mage powers. However, she has cards up her sleeve that she doesn’t share.
Fellion is one of the strongest female characters I’ve seen in a while. I especially love her choice at the end because it’s not something that happens a lot, at least in YA fiction. But perhaps I need to get off the YA train more often. I do like how her story unfolds and how unapologetic she seems.
The world-building was great as well. I liked the concept of how the mages got their power.
The only thing I wished was that the story and side characters were more fleshed out. Some parts didn’t seem as smooth.
But overall, I’d recommend this book! I enjoyed reading it.
